Klein has claimed the suspect in the case attempted to kill her.

The Westside Current article continued:

Anthony Francisco Jones, 29, was apprehended in San Diego on April 11 and booked at the LAPD-West Bureau on April 12, in relation to the assault of the two women. Jones faces charges of two counts of forcible rape, one count each of sexual penetration using force, one count of sodomy by use of force, one count of mayhem, one count of torture, and one count of attempted murder.

Jones eventually pleaded not guilty to all charges. Meanwhile, police described the suspect as a black male standing six feet and one inch tall, weighing 200 pounds, and a transient, as reported by Truth Voices.

“According to authorities, Jones doesn’t appear to have a criminal record in LA County, however, his background, including his legal status, remains unclear. Jones is being held without bail and his next court date is June 11 at the LAX Superior Courthouse in Westchester, according to county jail records,” the Westside Current report stated.

Klein was recently discharged from a local health center after experiencing seizures. She will be unable to return to work for several months as the wires were only recently removed from her jaw and she continues to recover.

Before Alden’s passing, KTLA obtained security footage showing the suspect walking in the area while carrying an allegedly stolen bottle of liquor:

As of Sunday afternoon, a GoFundMe page created to support a memorial for Alden has raised over $29,000 of its $150,000 goal.

“All funds will go directly to Sarah’s two sons for her memorial, funeral, medical expenses and to help cover costs for their college educations to create a life without their beloved mother,” the page read.
